From Project Mailer

In the middle of the cliché—great truth spectrum is the parable and paradox which tells us that one is two, that a thing is its opposite. It combines the consciousness of the first layer of sup and of er, but it is a long way from the kind of Great Truth which involves the total of the sup and the total of the er—the thing present not in the word but in the thought of God, of Life, of Death, etc. Those words are the great clichés and the great truths.
